Résumé : Nonparasitic splenic cysts are uncommon lesions, for which partial splenectomy offers a definitive treatment while preserving splenic function. We report the use of radiofrequency energy for laparoscopic partial splenectomy to treat two children with nonparasitic splenic cysts by creating a 1-cm thick coagulated parenchyma resection plane, allowing bloodless splenic transection. This approach spares the need for blood transfusions, reduces hospital stay, and offers great promise for partial splenectomy in children. © Mary Ann Liebert, Inc.
